Artists of all types and from every corner of the planet have pushed hard on what can be termed textile, and even harder on the ways in which textile can be considered art. Once marginalized from the hidebound concept of “fine art” because of its functional origins, textile art now appears poised to take advantage of its previous outsider status—principally by asking questions of art’s presumed hierarchies.

John Lee and Karin Bravin opened their gallery in Soho in 1991. In 2006, expanding upon the conventional gallery, they opened BravinLee programs in Chelsea to exhibit artists and collaborate with colleagues and institutions on a project by project basis. In addition to gallery exhibitions, BravinLee curates several off-site shows and public art installations; they produce limited edition rugs, sculptural editions; and they privilege the medium of the artist book in their artists’ book program.
